- I completely forgot what it’s like to work full time, drive to a different city for work, run a business, keep a home, take care of furbabies, support-DJ, plan a wedding, play a league sport, nourish my relationship with my fiancé, and maybe sleep. And eat. . Oh, wait... no I didn’t. This is all n e w AF. 😳 . Stay tuned for next week’s blog on 2017: The Year of New. (I meant to pun that 😉) . P.S. This weekend is no less busy, but I’m looking forward some real snuggle time with this lil guy ❤️ . . . . . #raiseyourglass2018 #weddingplanning #bridetobe2018 #theimperfectboss #yycliving #bravingthewilderness #lifecoach #adayinthelife #mycreativebiz #coaching #lovehim #beautifulworld #bestrong #collectivelycreate #vulnerability #livelifetothefullest #everysquareastory #livethelittlethings #writerscommunity #thevulnerabilitychallenge #beauthentic #beyourself #bethechange #abeautifulmess #yycinfluencer #yyc

- I just started listening to Braving the Wilderness by @brenebrown but I have already laughed and cried and had to turn it off to collect myself because it was describing me to a T--- I am so amazed, this might be the best book I have ever stumbled across...today I wrote my first permission slip to myself and I can see how this habit will change my life! Anyone who's know my workout habits will understand the reason for this slip! Thank you for this life changing book Brene! #brenebrown #permissionslip #lifechanging #ineedtoheal #coachbutnotperferct #healthyhabits #bravingthewilderness #metoatee #lovethisbook #audiobookschangedmylifetoo

- “You are only free when you realize you belong no place – you belong every place – no place at all. The price is high. The reward is great.” [Maya Angelou] • I wasn’t sure what I’d discover when I first started this book, but it turns out I found true belonging and freedom in braving the wilderness • When we are willing to risk venturing into the wilderness, we feel the deepest connection to our true self and to what matters most • To know that we can navigate the wilderness on our own, to know that we can stay true to our beliefs, trust ourselves, and survive it, that is true belonging • I’m grateful for this adventure, call to courage, and the meaningful conversations around this book✨🌲💙 #bravingthewilderness #brenebrown #truebelonging

- #Repost @kristenlunceford (@get_repost) ・・・ "Human approval is one of our most treasured idols, and the offering we must lay at its hungry feet is keeping others comfortable. I'm convinced that discomfort is the great deterrent of our generation. Protecting the status quo against our internal convictions is obviously a luxury of the privileged, because the underdogs and outliers and marginalized have no choice but to experience the daily wilderness. But choosing the wily outpost over the security of the city gates takes a true act of courage. That first step will take your breath away. • Speaking against power structures that keep some inside and others outside has a cost, and the currency most often drafted from my account is belonging. Consequently, the wilderness sometimes feels very lonely and punishing, which is a powerful disincentive. But I've discovered something beautiful; the loneliest steps are the ones between the city walls and the heart of the wilderness, where safety is in the rearview mirror, new territory remains to be seen, and the path out to the unknown seems empty. But put one foot in front of the other enough times, stay the course long enough to actually tunnel into the wilderness, and you'll be shocked how many people already live out there--thriving, dancing, creating, celebrating, belonging. It is not a barren wasteland. It is not unprotected territory. It is not void of human flourishing. The wilderness is where all the creatives and prophets and system-buckers and risk-takers have always lived, and it is stunningly vibrant. The walk out there is hard but the authenticity out there is life." • Full stop on this from @jenhatmaker and @brenebrown's entire book, #bravingthewilderness. It gutted and gifted me beyond measure.

It is horrible and exhausting and temporary, but only if YOU chose you. ⠀ ⠀ You see in this world there are many people who will disappoint, dishonour and shame you if they can.

- “Imagine waking up, every morning and you are in control. Nothing has a hold on you, nothing dragging you to a quiet place where you need to hide and use in disappointment in yourself. A life where you become respected by peers instead of frowned upon. A life where people smile at you in the street and tell you good morning. A life where you work, and don’t have to drink until you pass out on a Friday and Saturday night because the fear of Mondays is too much. So if you want that life, where nothing has a hold on you, however far you think you are, its available to us all. You maybe a person on the street looking for a hit, a functioning working user who drinks through peer/ work pressure, a high end business multimillionaire who needs that fix to ‘focus’. We all have every excuse under the sun why we ‘need’ it. Who are you trying to kid? Remember us addicts have perfected the art of excuses, we are all the same. So back to my original question I was asked, ‘what does addiction mean to you?’ It means to me, like millions of us out there, who realise or don’t, that we need an escape. Not having control of who we are. Having our ‘little best friend’ to ‘help us out’. It means having excuses and living a dishonest life. Substance use doesn’t make us happy. It handcuffs our warped minds and thoughts to make is think is okay. Why not be the best representation of who you can be. Settle for nothing less. Deal with life on life’s terms and stop using excuses to use. I relapsed on a drug called life, better than any high I’ve been in the presence of. I was promised a life beyond my wildest dreams and it sure didn’t disappoint. It works if you work it, so work it because you’re worth it.” - This was Part 2 of a story shared anonymously by a dear friend. Do you have an addiction story? A recovery story?

- A bit ironic last night that I began reading @brenebrown's 'Braving the Wilderness' and my @yogitea quote on my tea bag was "The purpose of life is to know yourself and love yourself and trust yourself and be yourself"... ignore the run-on sentence but that's really what it said. A little too fitting for this read! • • • #bravingthewilderness #currentlyreading #igreads #bibliophile #currentread #bookaholic #booknerd #bookphotography #booklover #bookish #vscobooks #nowreading #booklove #bookworm #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #goodreads #booknerdigans #instabook #instabooks #bookaddict #instaread #reading #bookstagramfeature #amreading #instareads #reader #librarybook #librarylove
